Dear COAP community,
We have some important news to share with you. We are excited to share that our wonderful online community will be moving to a new home in August 2016. The new home will be The National Association for Children of Alcoholics – NACOA. You can find out more about them at their website, which is located here. Our message boards will continue to be open at NACOA and available 24/7 on the NACOA website – just like it has been on COAP.
The NACOA message boards will be very similar to the COAP message boards. All of the messages that have ever been posted will transfer over to the message boards at NACOA (that’s over 6,000 messages!), as well as your personal details so that NACOA can continue to operate the message boards and manage your member accounts. We know that a lot of the information that you post is very personal, and NACOA will make sure that the only people who can link your posts to your member accounts are those who really need to do so to keep the message boards working properly.
Message board members and mentors who have lived with or are living with a parent’s addiction will still reply to messages posted. The message boards will also now have the added support of helpline volunteers at NACOA replying to messages posted.
We very much hope our online community will continue to grow and importantly let everyone living with an addicted parent know they are not alone!
The new home for COAP online community and message boards does sadly mean that COAP will close down due to funding cuts and the COAP website will no longer be available. We know COAP has been a second home, a place of safety, a place to feel heard and understood.
We want to say a big heart felt thank you to each and everyone one of you for making COAP the special place that it has become over almost 10 years since it began in 2006. We want to hear your thoughts and we are here for you at this time. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us here.
